This has been a heck of a week. Louise and I have had more fun here in Coeur d’Alene, starting with being able to attend Amy’s graduation. Right from the start the excitement at the Croson home was contagious. Amy was “floating” from the basement to the upper floor, back to the main floor and then starting all over again. This was her day…Friday, June 8th…Graduation Day from Coeur d’Alene High. The whole dang family was here to witness this day. The first thing Friday was to get Amy into her hat and gown so that all of us could get our pictures before leaving for the auditorium. This of course was after the 2nd shower for the day, a pedicure, painting of the nails, re-doing of her hair for the 10th time, and arguing with her mom and brothers about taking too long. Then finally it was picture time. Thank God for digital cameras…I know that I personally took over 70 pictures and I was only one camera…”can you PLEASE smile…can you stand up straight…can…can…can…”…poor Amy. We all got some wonderful pictures and Amy held up like a champ. Now it was off to the High School for the ceremony. I must admit that a couple of the graduation ceremonies that we have been too have been very long and tough to stay with, but this one seemed to move along very well. We had a great time. Amy has a whole 6 days to let it all sink in before she has to be in Seattle for her first day on “the job”. She will be working on the East side this summer and then in the Fall she will be going onto Shoreline Community College to jump start her studies before moving on to the UW. CONGRATULATIONS AMY !!!
